The agency advised consumers and caregivers to exercise caution and vigilance to avoid the use of the product. NAFDAC emphasized that all medical products should be obtained from authorized and licensed suppliers, and the authenticity and physical condition of the products should be carefully checked before use.Consumers who have already used B- GAG Healthy Syrup are urged to report any adverse or side effects to their nearest NAFDAC office. The agency announced that it would notify the World Health Organization (WHO) Global Surveillance and Monitoring System (GSMS) about the illegal production and marketing of the syrup.

NAFDAC’ s warning underscores the importance of ensuring that all medicinal products undergo rigorous testing and approval processes to protect public health. The agency’ s proactive surveillance activities are crucial in identifying and mitigating risks posed by unapproved and potentially harmful products in the market. As of the time of this report, attempts to contact the makers of B- GAG Healthy Syrup were unsuccessful, as the product does not include any phone or email contact information. This lack of contact information further raises concerns about the legitimacy and safety of the product. Consumers are reminded to remain vigilant and to report any suspicious or unapproved products to NAFDAC to help safeguard public health. The agency continues to monitor and regulate the market to prevent the distribution and sale of unsafe medicinal products.
